Seems like it's one step forward, two steps back. Just bolted up some shortie headers and I see that the dip stick is going to have to be rerouted. Anyone have any suggestions. I'm sure I can make something work but would appreciate any ideas before I butcher my oil stick tube. Thanks, Tater

I have a 66 Mustang & the dipstick on it is located at the fronf of the engine on the left side of the water pump. It plugs into the timing chain cover just above the oil pan.
My bronco has its dipstick on the left side of the engine down into the side of the oil pan.
I have seen (on mine anyways) what looks to be a plug in the timing chain cover, i have not investigated wether its removable or not but you might try.
I`m sure someone else on here will know, good luck.
